The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation,
has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to
current shareholders of Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation (“Atlantic Coast”
or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: “ACFC”) and other violations of state law by the
board of directors of Atlantic Coast relating to the proposed buyout of the
Company by Bond Street Holdings, Inc. Atlantic Coast is the holding company of
Atlantic Coast Bank. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other
things, whether Atlantic Coast’s board of directors breached their fiduciary
duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.

According to the press release announcing the proposed buyout, the Company’s
shareholders will receive $5.00 per share in cash for each common share owned.
Of the total transaction price of $5.00, $2.00 will be held in an escrow
account and will be available to cover losses from stockholder claims for one
year or until the final resolution of such claims, if later.
